Weekend Wrap Up

2016-05-10_0017Waiting on Martha, One Room Challenge

May is in full swing! It has been a very busy, fun week and today I’m heading up to the Hudson Valley to see my friend, Ted Kennedy Watson, at his East Coast home and will be swinging through Trade Secrets, the Bunny Williams created garden show in northern Connecticut. Decor is front and center with the recent finale of the One Room Challenge, a 6 week interior design challenge, featuring 20 bloggers, hosted by Linda of Calling Home. The reveals have been nothing short of spectacular, so I encourage you to visit each of the participants to see how they took one room and transformed it!

I’m always impressed with Mandy Kellogg Rye of Waiting on Marthaas her style is always clean but cool, stylish without ever being stuffy….fun with a flourish!

orc graphic orcPaige Minear, of The Pink Clutch,  made such a incredible transition of her wood paneled living room that I’m still trying to take in all the impact. If you love color…this room is for you! Leopard + loads of color = fabulous!sueMy friend, Sue, of The Zhush, did the most amazing laundry room makeover! I love my laundry room, but Sue took it up a notch!! That wallpaper!!

Kips Bay just opened, so plan your visit now!

Join me at Nest Inspired Home next Friday, May 20th from 1-5pm to meet Seattle artist, Jeanne McKay Hartmann! 

Before you know it, we’ll be prepping for Memorial Day Weekend and the unofficial kickoff to summer. Make the most of May…it’s almost half way over.


Spotted…A Really Cool Space

Happy Monday!!! I hope you had a great weekend. I just returned from attending a milestone college reunion in Texas….so fun to reconnect with old friends who knew you when you weren’t even sure where life would take you. 

Back to reality today and my spot in front of my computer. I work in a teeny, tiny little space near my kitchen and family room…kind of a built in workspace. I thought it was a great idea originally, but I must admit to office-envy, as I would love a dedicated room for my *stuff*. So, I really stopped in my tracks when I spotted (pun intended) this amazing workspace created by Waiting On Martha blogger, Mandy, for the One Room Challenge

That wallpaper! The ghost chairs and Knoll table. That light fixture! What a happy workspace! I kind of want to move in.

Do you have a dedicated office or workspace? I’d love to know!
